This book is a work of fiction. Although some of the places and historical personages mentioned are real, the story’s main characters are entirely fictional.
The first thin spiral of smoke wound slowly upwards from the brushwood just lit, bringing with it sparks and a pleasant aromatic scent bearing incongruous memories of feast days and celebrations. The confused murmur from the jostling crowd held back by guards beyond the perimeter fences lent to the illusion – briefly. Until moving awkwardly against the chains that held him fast to the hard wooden post, the jarring pain from his broken body forced Miguel back into the present. The fires had been lit! Soon the pain would follow.
